    The Bosch Sensortec product naming convention is the following:
    1st Letter : Manufacturer
    B - Bosch

    2nd Letter : Device type
    H - Hub
    M - MEMS
    N - Node

    3rd Letter : Sensor type
    A - Accelerometer
    C - Compass (accelerometer + magnetometer)
    E - Environmental
    F - Freely Programmable
    G - Gyroscope
    I - IMU (accelerometer + gyroscope)
    L - Light
    M - Magnetometer
    O - Orientation
    P - Pressure
    V - Vital
    X - 9-aXis (accelerometer + gyroscope + magnetometer)

     

    Therefore the meaning of BMX is "Bosch MEMS 9-axis"
